Ivar Brandels is a photographer from Stockholm. The themes of his work deal with the relational between the Self and the Other, often in regards to social contexts and solitude: from loss and lack of what has been, to the loneliness of the individual inside the collective.

This is explored in different types of methods, inspired by popular cultural references as cinematic and comic strip practices, where he stages longer photographic sequences and scenes to portray the different narratives.

He currently studies a BFA in photography at Valand Academy in Gothenburg, Sweden.
